Got a story in mind? How about just an idea for a story? Either way, Dramatica® Story Expert™ for Mac is a great place to start. As your creative writing partner, it takes you to a special place: A story development environment where together you’ll solve plot and character problems that prevent many good stories from becoming great enough to sell. 

Dramatica Story Expert takes many of Dramatica Pro’s classic tools, like its outstanding question and answer system, and gives them a major overhaul while also adding tons of fresh features. From the completely new project overview window and optional icon toolbar to the revamped menus and enhanced StoryGuide and Master Story Engine windows, Dramatica Story Expert goes a long way toward making the story development process easier and more enjoyable.

Dramatica Story Expert Overview

Use Dramatica Story Expert’s advanced tools to:

  • Cast and build your characters, plot out your story, layer in themes with universal meaning, and put it all together into scenes to form a solid step outline
  • Gain a new perspective on your project with the Master Story Engine, an interactive tool that gives you fifty-six story points with which to control the story’s underlying storyform
  • Track throughlines in the plot progression view to see how they show parallel development from beginning to end and reflect your story’s act order
  • Customize Dramatica’s terminology with short descriptive phrases called “gists,” so that its questions conform to your writing style and the story’s specific subject matter

Plus, Dramatica Story Expert does something no other program can do—it literally becomes your mentor, forecasting parts of your story based on the creative decisions you make. You’ll be delighted to see how many of your selections Dramatica agrees with, and amazed when it presents ideas you haven’t thought of yet.

You’ll find yourself incorporating those ideas into your developing story to make it even tighter, with no plot holes or character inconsistencies, so you’ll end up with a solid outline. And everyone knows a bulletproof outline is the key to a successful script!
